I really like this Duprees FWIW.

Two great Jerry solos.

Excellent recommendation, and a funny thing (at least to me): I was AT this show and I listen to the second set all the time. It's one of my all-time favorite Scarlet-Fires, one of your better-sung Terrapins, and hands-down best ever Touch of Grey. Guess I better pay a little more attention to those first sets ...

Thanks.

That is funny b/c when I posted the show a few weeks before that others said the S>F was the worst of the year. I did not think it was so bad myself. Killer show. All a matter of perspective I reckon.

I bet it was mind altering to be there for that Truckin'!

Check out the tight 4/14/78 Dupree's with some cool little flourishes at the end. Whether you like it or not, this is one of the best sounding boards ever made period, so you can not go wrong. Before Music a guy hollers out. "Other One Bobby!" and he says, "Later man." Sure enough. Guy had to be psyched.

Well no doubt my fondness for the Scarlet-Fire is because I was there. Fire's not as extended as it could be, and Jer makes a mighty mess of the lyrics, but the post-Scarlet jam is a pretty sweet 5-6 minutes.

It is a beautifully sung Terrapin - Jerry was in good voice that week (see 09-17-82 Morning Dew ...)

No! Not just 'cause you were there. The S>F is jaw-just-dropping stuff. The solo on Scarlet and the transition jam are out of this world.
Never liked FOTM so I hadn't even noticed that part!

call it like it is, 11-06-77 is the worst of the year and likely the worst version with Keith and Donna, one version has to be the "worst" if we are looking at their music objectively for a moment, yes, every show is great and blissful, blah, blah, blah, but for historical relevance, 11-06-1977 is the worst S>F of the year, due to limp playing, lack of inspiration, blown lyrics and the bail out at the end into Good Lovin'...love the Truckin'
